The government's ambition to speed up the adoption process has led to many services looking for new ways of working. Here in Wigan, we began that journey earlier than most. In 2010, we commissioned a report into sharing our services with neighbouring authorities. That led to the idea of merging with Warrington and St Helens. It would be the first time in the country three local authority adoption services had come together.
